    I have been highly unfortunate enough as to have had a bad cold virus, got better and now have contracted what seems to be the flu, and insomnia. All in 3 wks

    Understandably I am very fed up, what do you like to do when you have the flu?

    And why does everyone seem to be getting it recently?

    At the start of this year I was getting colds / flu about once a month for about 4 or 5 months!

    You just got to ride it out really, I don't tend to find much helps. Actually I have got some cocodemal at home and I find that knocks you out if your having trouble sleeping.

    immune system dissapearing due to high cleanliness.

    i get on with life, no point feeling sorry for urself, best thing to do is pretend it doesnt exist...

    i had a chronic bacterial infection in my sinus for 3 months, high pressure and headaches behind the eyes, a nose bleed i had to have cauterized and it only took me out properly for 1 week... just get on with things as best u can.

    I like to take loads of hot showers when I'm sick and drink tons of hot tea/coffee/soups if my throat is bothering me at all. Drink plenty of fluids as well.

    too clean leads to a weak immune system, fuck the place up a lil, i tend to go for ganja and co-codomal, loads of tea, maybe with honey, and try sweating shit loads.

    exercise (ie a brief walk in the morning) helps boost immune 'patrols' for about 3-4 hours... increased circulation and fresh air get the immune system working and means it is quicker and more efficient in tracking down and eliminating pathogens... (y)
